What They Said 

Comments from memphisflyer.com

About "State's Big Four School Districts Frown on Bills for Munis, Charter Authorizer, Vouchers":
"Just because a school system works and works well is no barrier to all the little chiefs wanting to chip off a piece of the action for themselves. That, I think, is the fear. That is also why the representatives of those areas are so opposed to any law concerning munis that might apply statewide instead of just to Shelby County. IOW, the gander isn't too keen to share the fate of the goose." — jeff

About "Which State Legislature Is Stupider? Oklahoma or Tennessee?":
"Mother Jones wants to ban conventional religious beliefs from the classroom, but wants to include Al Gore's 'global warming' religion — which he clearly doesn't believe in himself — and present it as fact. So, they might as well just leave things as they are and think back to the days when Rome sent its legions out to fight the invading dinosaur herds." — GWCarver

About "The Rant":
"That damn boy, Sampson, needs to get the hell out of the South if he insults & dishonors our Southern Heroes in the war of Northern Aggression. ... There was a reason those statues were erected in the first place; Forrest was known as the 'Wizard of the Saddle' for good reason ... loved by thousands, white & black alike!" — sky blue

Comment of the Week:
About "Letter from the Editor" and parks, slavery, and the KKK:
"Wonderful idea — an anti-klan protest by costumed Sons of the Confederacy. Bring in some hoop-skirted Daughters while we're at it, whacking at the sheetheads with their parasols. All those raised in Memphis on wrasslin' scenarios can come up with endless variations." — crackoamerican
